Chinese Heart or Dragon Heart?

In Chinese, a computer chip are often analogized as the “heart” of the computer. The analogy partially comes from the old ad. of Intel for Pentium–“Give your computer a Robust Heart (the Chinese transliteration for “Pentium” roughly means robust)”.

In January 2006, a technological scandal was reveal by a mysterious figure named “Deep Throat” that a star professor Chen Jin in Shanghai Jiaotong University fabricated a “Han Chip” (Chinese Heart) project and obtains billions of fund from the government. Those chips that were claimed to be independently developed by Chen were actually Motorola chips with trademark wiped off. http://info.china.alibaba.com/news/detail/v5000441-d5688591.html ; http://www.iht.com/articles/2006/05/31/business/chinet.php

In a sharp contrast, the chips that are really developed by Chinese enterprises–“Loongson” (Dragon Heart) are going to be exported to France and Italy. http://tech.sina.com.cn/it/2006-12-26/02031305932.shtml
